We needed a place to get away and relax, and this fit the bill. Directly across from a beach access, so though not on the beach you can see the beach. Nice pool and courtyard area for relaxing and getting sun. Courteous, helpful staff.

We just got back after a night at the Coral Key Inn. We've stayed in many hotels/inns along El Mar Drive and really enjoy this place! The location is perfect, you can't hear anything that's going on outside of your room, and there's a small pool and a grill to cook out on. Sure, it's an older building, but most... More

The place is run down, moldy and the management is a complete joke. I highly recommend anyone stays far away from this place. It's expensive for what it is and the construction they are doing next door and across the street is a complete buzz kill

I bought a Groupon for this place and we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in the far left room on the second floor, maybe room 26. My friends stayed in room 24. Both rooms seemed similar...kitchenette, livingroom, bathroom, bedroom...Its an old building in general, so you can expect it to heve some cosmetic issues both inside and out, but nit... More

Great boutique type of hotel across from beach , Tugba was very accommodating. Switched our room, although they were full and we had to use a studio instead of a bedroom suite. The studio was small but clean and sufficient.
